Protests intensify against same sex marriages

24 February 2014, 09:27

Nairobi - Anti-gay activists have protested against legalization of the practice of homosexuality in the country condemning such unions as unnatural.

The protest comes hot in the heels of similar topic in Uganda where parliament passed a bill that allows harsh penalties for homosexual offenses..

The bill is yet to be signed into law by Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni.

The Kenyan Constitution recognizes marriage between two consenting adults of the opposite sex.

“If gays and lesbians are given rights then that will be the end of the world. That is a weapon of mass destruction. It is like terrorism whereby if everybody was gay then the world will come to an end. If all women were lesbians, then there will be no women to give birth to children,” said Ndiritu Njoya, Chairman for Maendeleo ya Wanaume.

Njoya was speaking during the protest organized by Maendeleo ya Wanaume to protest against homosexuality at a time when 20 members of Parliament have vowed to push for the enforcement of anti-gay laws in Kenya.

“We plan to summon Director of Public Prosecutions, Keriako Tobiko, and Attorney-General, Githu Muigai, to testify about why the government has failed to implement anti-gay law,” said Irungu Kangata.

Kenya is among the 38 African countries which have outlawed same-sex marriages even though anti-gay laws have not been dully enforced by the authorities.

Popular author, Binyavanga Wainaina, recently stirred controversy by “coming out” to declare his homosexuality through publishing what he termed as a lost chapter of his 2011 memoir.
